The Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture at the City College of New York is celebrating the work of faculty artists in an exhibition of five distinct and inspired points of view that illustrate the dynamic relationship between art and architecture.

The unique display of faculty fine arts opens Dec. 21 and features works by:

  • Daniel Hauben, celebrated for his deep explorations into urban landscape, has been painting along Bronx streets, parks, and from windows and rooftops for nearly 30 years.
  • Irma Ostroff’s paintings, in vibrant color, are abstract and geometric, subtly influenced by the architectural landscapes she experiences.
  • David Judelson’s work investigates the relationship between form and structure.
  • Alan Feigenberg’s photographs address both person and personality in the built environment.
  • Albert Vecerka, celebrated ESTO photographer, exhibits both his professional architectural work as well as his personal investigations of the architectural environments he has documented.

“Five Artists + Architecture” is curated by Lance Jay Brown, FAIA, urban designer and Distinguished Professor at the Spitzer School. “The Spitzer School of Architecture has always recognized the value of giving students the opportunity to integrate a wide range of visual arts studies into their studio design education and research,” said Brown. “This show offers insight into how artists’ work introduces new ways of thinking about the designed environment and ways of seeing that augment the architecture curriculum.” 

On Dec. 20 at 6 p.m., the opening reception for “Five Artists + Architecture” will include introductory remarks by Sarah Lawrence professor and Metropolitan Museum of Art lecturer Jerrilyn Dodds. The exhibition will be held in the school’s Atrium Gallery, 141 Convent Avenue, New York, NY and runs through Feb. 16, 2018. The show is free and open to the public Monday-Friday, 9 - 5 p.m., except holidays.
